WJ Structures have partnered with main contractor Artez Group on a large refurbishment contract to refurbish 200,000 sq ft of residential development for clients Capital & Centric. Located on Chapeltown Street, Manchester City Centre.
This modern mix of traditional and contemporary design proposes 201, 1-2 bedroom loft-style living apartments. Utilising the industrial layout of the old mill to create something truly unique.
Our presence on site is to conduct large scale abrasive cleaning to the mill's internal envelope. Our abrasive cleaning techniques on this project involve grit blasting. The grit blasting method involves forcibly blasting sand medium against both masonry and steel surfaces at high pressure. This pressurised cleaning process allows us to remove existing surface contaminants such as lead based paint. As the restoration of Crusader Mill continues, we can stand back and appreciate the mill's long forgotten industrialised character and its inherent rustic charm.
